Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold



Believed to date back to 1873, Beechwood Farm is a smart country house which has been beautifully renovated by the current owners.
Elegant limestone flooring runs through the beautiful hallway to the snug at the rear of the house and the generous kitchen/breakfast room with granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink and Aga creates a tasteful farmhouse style living space with doors opening onto the terrace. The drawing room has large windows allowing for plenty of natural light, and a beautiful feature fireplace with stone surrounded, currently housing a log burner. There is a cloakroom, dining room and neatly tucked away study to the ground floor, all carefully designed to create a modern family home with flexible and practical living space, all finished to exacting standards. The master bedroom has views over the attractive gardens and paddocks beyond, and has a good sized en-suite with stylish floor tiles, elegant spotlighting and smart fittings. There is a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, as well as three further bedrooms and a family bathroom, all finished beautifully.

Checkendon is a quiet South Oxfordshire village in the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and provides a church, village hall, primary school and two public houses.

The village is based only a short distance from Henley-on- Thames, a traditional market town with many facilities, shops and cultural aspects, including the renowned Henley Regatta. Wallingford and Pangbourne are also a short distance away and provides additional shops, other amenities, plus direct rail links into Reading and London.

The more comprehensive amenities of Reading are about 7 miles away and the M4 (J12) provides access to the West Country, M4 (J8/9) for London and its airports. The M40 (J6) is also close at hand with access to the north.

A first class range of schooling is available including Cranford House, Moulsford, Pangbourne College, Bradfield College and The Oratory. There are wonderful recreational facilities in the area and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its footpaths and bridleways.

The house is approached over a gravel driveway with parking for a number of vehicles, as well as a triple garage which has a studio above it, complete with kitchen and bathroom, as well as electricity and phone line. The stabling lies to one side of the house comprising three loose boxes, and there is a large storage shed opposite which has planning to be converted into a timber framed barn, or could potentially be incorporated into the house for further accommodation, subject the necessary planning consents.

The paddocks are located to the side and rear of the main garden, bordered by post and rail fencing with woodland to the boundaries providing shade and privacy. One of the paddocks contains a further stable which also serves as a field shelter. The garden lies to the rear of the property and is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders surrounding the house, and mature trees and hedging giving seclusion to the beautiful gardens. A small picket gate to the far end of the garden opens into one of the paddocks, with a wider five bar gate to the side opening into the second paddock. There is a paved terrace off the back of the house which can be accessed from the kitchen, snug and drawing room, ideal for dining and entertaining.
